CD Montesinos have a crunch game at home against Sporting San Fulgencio at the Municipal Stadium on February 10 in a battle to avoid relegation.

In a bottom of the table clash CD Montesinos, fourth bottom, host second bottom Sporting San Fulgencio in the Valencia 1st Regional Group 8.

Just five points separate the bottom eight teams ahead of Sunday’s fixtures, with eighth bottom Atletico Catral on 19 points, and bottom club Monforte CF on 14 points.

Sandwiched in between are Callosa Deportivo B, Dolores, Betis Florida, CD Montesinos, Altet and San Fulgencio.

AC Torrellano defeated CD Montesinos 2-0 on Saturday that kept the home side in the chase for promotion – in contrast to struggling Montesinos who have chalked up a mere 17 points this season.

A defeat against San Fulgencio would turn up the volume of the alarm bells that have been ringing loud at the Los Montesinos club this season.

CD Altet hit back with a 3-1 win against Dolores at the weekend – gaining their third win in four games – after losing against Hondon on January 27.

Hondon gained a 1-0 away win against mid table Monovar CD to go joint second with Murada, who drew 1-1 against Santa Pola CF.

Betis Florida and Callosa Deportivo B shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw.

CD Montesinos will be looking to key players – in captain Fernando and talisman midfielder Maccan – to be influential against Sporting San Fulgencio in what is turning out to be an increasing relegation concern amongst the supporters.
